Items wanted for WWI exhibition
As part of the commemorations for the centenary of the start of World War I in August 2014, the Town Council is planning an exhibition of artefacts and memorabilia from the period. If anyone has any diaries, letters, photographs, postcards etc. from family members who were involved in the conflict, we would love it if you could bring them to the Civic Centre so that we could photocopy them for display. Also, if you have any other items that you would be prepared to part with for the duration of the event they would be most gratefully received. We would like to put on an exhibition that truly reflects the impact of the war on the inhabitants of Warminster and the surrounding villages, so please have a look in the boxes or suitcases you may have stashed away in the attic to see if you can unearth a hidden gem or two for our collection.
It is planned that the exhibition will run from 14th to 22nd August 2014.
